In May 2013, Fungimap published our first Citizen Science Guide, the Guide to Surveying Fungi in Australia. This is available for free to download as a PDF, and as amendments and additions are made, you will be able to access current versions and amendments here.

Publishing this Guide could not have been possible without the support of the Cradle Coast Authority, and the input and comments of Fungimappers, field naturalists, and scientists around Australia. Fungimap is incredibly grateful to them all for their contributions. If you have a comment or would like to see something added to the next version of the Guide, please let us know by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

The key intention of this guide is to increase the number of fungal surveys which are being done around Australia and to provide resources for those who are currently managing a fungal survey or who would like to undertake one in the future. If you are organising a fungal survey, please let us know about it by completing the form found here; this will enable others to see what surveys are being done (or aren't being done) in their area, and what further assistance they can contribute; together citizen science can make a huge impact on the study of our fantastic fungi!
